Continental plans to double its worldwide sales in the next five years, said Stephan Kessel, chairman, at a ceremony to dedicate the company's new North American original equipment (OE) headquarters today. The new 250,000-square-foot facility, located in Oakland County's Automation Alley, makes this growth possible by combining Continental's Detroit operations under one roof. Continental is poised to reach this goal through an equal blend of internal growth and portfolio management.
